Where are all the native Singaporeans?
Posted by temasektimes on August 12, 2012
A man from China arrives in Singapore as a new immigrant. He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says, “Thank you Mr. Singaporean for letting me into this country, giving me housing, medical care, and a scholarship and a promise of a job upon completion of my studies!”
The passerby says, “You are mistaken, I am an Indian from India.”
The man goes on and encounters another passerby. “Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in Singapore.”
The person says, “I not Singaporean, I Vietnamese.”
The new arrival walks farther, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand, and says, “Thank you for wonderful Singapore !
That person puts up his hand and says, “I am from Philippines . I am not Singaporean.”
He finally sees a nice lady and asks, “Are you a Singaporean?”
She says, “No, I am from Malaysia.”
Puzzled, he asks her, “Where are all the Singaporeans?”
The Malaysian lady checks her watch and says, “Probably all hv been REPLACED liao”
